There are a thousand stories in the land of Narnia, and the first is about to be told in an extraordinary motion picture, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, from Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media.

In the never-ending war between good and evil, The Chronicles of Narnia set the stage for battles of epic proportions. Some take place in vast fields, where the forces of light and darkness clash. But other battles occur within the small chambers of the heart and are equally decisive.

Journeys to the ends of the world, fantastic creatures, betrayals, heroic deeds and friendships won and lost -- all come together in an unforgettable world of magic. So join the battle to end all battles.

The second volume in
The Chronicles of Narnia®
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Narnia .... a land frozen in eternal winter ... a country waiting to be set free.

Four adventurers step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia -- a land enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change ... and a great sacrifice.

  • greatest children's book of all time
    From Amazon

    There are a very few treasures in this world that never lose their magic. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is one of them. It has been almost twenty years since I first read this book, and I still get goose bumps. It's not one of the deepest or most poetic pieces of literature, but it is truly one of the most magical. "Magical" is really the word to describe this enchanting novel. It's very, very simplistic as it works its powers on the child imagination. A wardrobe that is a door into a magic realm that needs to be saved from eternal winter. Even after many readings and many years, I still feel the beauty and the darkness of the book. I still get a little freaked out by the paranoia of the trees listening in. And I still feel the incredible power and joy of the melting snows. C.S. Lewis' masterpiece is deceptively simple. He takes the ordinary and turns it into pure magic. He plays with the child's imagination. He creates darkness in simplicity. The simplicity is enchanting rather than dull. The characters are fantastic and utterly charmingly enchanting, from the brat and betrayer Edmund (my favorite) to the kind goodness of Lucy to the sympathetic and conflicted Mr. Tumnus the faun to the frightening and awe-inspiring Aslan and the White Witch. The simple and allegorical story of saving Narnia through sacrifice and redemption isn't really the point. The point is the magic of it all. One of my all time favorite books. One of the books that formed my imagination and my brain. Grade: A+

    From Amazon

    I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and I enjoyed it. In the beginning, the four children come to the professor's house to stay until the war is over. They are exploring the house one day, and Lucy goes into a wardrobe, thus into Narnia. In Narnia, she meets Mr. Tumnus, a friendly faun who wants a free Narnia. He explains the White Witch making ever-lasting winter in Narnia. In the middle of the book, the rest of them enter Narnia, war breaks, they meet Aslan, the lion, who saves Edmund, who had gone to the White Witch, who "killed" Aslan on the Stone Table. Near the end, Aslan kills the White Witch, and the children are Kings and Queens in Narnia, when they accidentally leave back through the wardrobe.

    People who like fantasies such as talking animals would like this book because it has a lot of them.

    From this book, I learned that dictators do not always use power wisely, so you can not trust anyone completely, even if they do seem kind and thoughtful.

    I read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and I enjoyed it very much. In the begging the kids (Lucy, Peter, Susan, and Edmund) live with their mom but they moved to live with the professer because of air-rids. At the professers house Lucy finds a wardrobe witch takes you to a place called Naira. When all the kids get there they meet the Beavers. In the middle the Beavers tell the four about Asland, a powerful lion who is on their side, and the horrible witch who is not on their side and who wants to take over Naira. Then Edmund sunk out over to the witch's house. Then the Beavers take the kids over to meet Asland, and he saves Edmund. In the end Asland dies for Edmund and the war begins. Then Asland comes alive again and Naira wins the war. After the four are crowned kings and queens they finally go back through the wardrobe to the professers house they are kids again.
    The themes for this book is always believe in your family. Two ways that they showed this in the book is that Susan, Peter, and Edmund, at first do not bevible Lucy when she first finds the wardrobe, and when they are hiding from the house keeper they go in the wardrobe they all find Naria.The second theme is that you should bevble even if others do not. In the book they show this because when Lucy first comes out of the wardrobe the others do not beveled her, and Susan, peter, and Edmund do not bevible Lucy about the wardrobe.
    The recommendion for this book is for people who like fantasy stories, or made up creatures and figure. Why, because this book has a lot of talking animal's creatures like fauns, and kids travel to a different. That is my book review.

  • Greatest Children's Book Series Written
    From Amazon

    Every child should read this book series, and especially "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." Every adult with a child's heart will love it as well. It is a great story and a meaningful Christian allegory. Having said that, the non-religious will love this regardless of the allegory.

    C.S. Lewis was a genius and wrote many powerful, thoughtful books. I am just thankful that he set out to try his hand at children's books, because in Narnia we have been left with something that is truly special.

  • The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
    From Amazon

    This book is a fantasy about a land called Narnia. Four English school children, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie enter the world of Narnia through a magical wardrobe while playing a game of hide and go seek. The four children are in this magical land to help the golden lion, Aslan, to defeat the White Witch. The White Witch has used her magic and cursed the land of Narnia with everlasting winter without Christmas. Throughout the book, the children meet many magical characters and animals. The children are forced to fight a war against the Witch and defeat her, which changes the land back to its original beauty and removes all curses she had on Narnia. The children became the Kings and Queens of Narnia for many years in Narnia time. However when they went on a hunt for a white stag, the children stumble upon the lamppost that they had found the first time they entered Narnia. The children wander in the forest near the lamppost and they fall out of the wardrobe that they had entered many years ago. On the other hand, the children were no longer adults as they were in Narnia, it was the same time, same day, and the children were in their same clothes that they were wearing when they wandered through the wardrobe and found Narnia.
    This is a high quality book in the fantasy genre. Most of the characters are fictional, yet the heroes of the story are children. There is more than one set of literary elements within this story. Each adventure in this book has its own problem, yet there is always one main problem. The language and style of this book is of English literature and some of the wording is different than the English used today. This book also has a different style. The children embark on an adventure to a magical land and find that they are the children of Adam and Eve. To them that is not important, however to the Narnians it means a great battle is to be had. There are a few illustrations through this book in black and white, however they do not tell a story within themselves. The story is told through the printed words. The illustrations are to give a glimpse of the Narnians or land in which the chapters are focusing on. The strength of this book is the high level of fantasy and adventure. The only concern for this book with lower readers is the names and the old English language used throughout the story. The reading level for this book is middle grades starting in fourth to eighth. In the classroom this book can be used as a beautiful example of fantasy. In the classroom, a way to see what the students are visualizing while reading is have the students complete a ten minute quick draw (Yopp & Yopp, 2006). The students can also predict the ending of the story, or even the ending to a chapter. The students can also journal about which character they would like to be use examples in the book to support why they choose that character. Also, the students could journal on the last quote from the professor, "But the professor was right it was only the beginning of the adventures of Narnia" in which the students could extend what they think this predicts for readers (Lewis, 1950, p.206). Lastly, the students could create a comparison chart and compare the fantasy in the story and reality (Harvey & Goudvis, 2007). The only concern for this book is the violence during the war and the fighting being discussed in the classroom.
